Parked at Wilderswood on Georges lane and walked up where I found a closer parking area just before the barrier on the access road up Winter hill. One hour thirty for the four and half miles also visited the Bolton UA top on the boundary which is behind the mast in front of you on the bend of the access road as if returning from the trig.WAYNE ROWLETT05/07/2020
